We had two houses - sleeper in the shallows and day house in the deep. We did much better in the shallows. 4 of us brought our limit home of walleyes but were only able to catch 3 keeper saugers. Did the best in the morning on the shallows. Our alarm clock was the rattle reels, once one went off, time to get up and start fishing. There was an average to below average evening bite in the shallows. Day bite in the deep house didn't go too good - we maybe got 10 fish between 4 of us. We caught a total of 52 fish for the trip! It wasn't fast and furious but it was still fun just to be with friends and family.

There was one nice pike caught by a member in our group, the only pike caught matter of fact. Caught it on a tip-up right before dark. Was just getting ready to pull it up when it hit. See the pics below. It came in at right around 40 to 41 inches.

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
